it probably should. this administration has shown itself to rely on drones and technology. hillary clinton mentioned this was a problem at the state department. we can bet it was a problem at the defense department. but this administration wants to put its faith there. we need manpower. in reality we still spend more than anyone else. but with iran heating up i don't think it's wise for us to be cutting back there. martha: how much of this is p.r. for lack of a better word in terms of alarming people. if you don't come to some sort of deal in washington you will see and hear more about losing presence in areas like the persian gulf? >> i think have much so. you have got republicans want to go pull back on sequestration. you have got the democrats wanting to. i think this is posturing for the white house trying to show republicans who are ostensibly the pro-defense party, we are going to make cutbacks in areas you don't want to cutback if the sequestration doesn't go through. martha: defense is one of the most important parts of the budget. if the see questionser kicks in is it an across th
hillary clinton's was. >> i could not agree with more. in terms of what we're going to hear from panetta, he will say the same thing from hillary clinton. essentially the same answers that he has already given in many interviews over how many months since the benghazi attack. what we can expect to hear from congressional republicans are the same sorts of disrespectful and antagonistic ill-informed things we also heard during the hearings of hillary clinton and even chuck hagel. >> heather: so not iminformed responses. i'll toss this question to you. they did indict the department of state, this is a quote, with shocking irresponsibility to protect american personnel at benghazi. the fact is the intelligence community and the department of state, they were sharing reports mostly provided by the c.i.a. for months that were outlining the growing threat in benghazi and, indeed, it was focused on western influence particularly the u.s. those requests early on for additional security prior to the attack went unanswered. you are satisfied with that response from panetta? >> yeah, i think what i
consulate could not sustain an attack. senator graham wanted to know why secretary clinton testified she never saw that cable. >> i don't know that she didn't know about the cable. >> she said she didn't. >> then -- >> are you stunned that she didn't? >> i would call myself surprised that she didn't. >> senator mccain asked about the u.s. providing weapons to the syrian opposition. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton and then head of c.i.a. general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? do you support that? >> we did. >> last weekend the "new york times" reported clinton and petraeus asked the white house last summer for permission to arm the veerian rebels. senator rand paul hinted last week that the annex in benghazi benefiting may have been involved in moving weapons from libya to syria via turkey. chris? >> jennifer griffin reporting from the pentagon. thanks. let's get reaction now from the vice chair of the senate intelligence committee, georgia republican sax by chambliss. you were busy in both hearings
with libyan government officials in the attack. white house official wrote, "secretary clinton called libyan president el-megarif on behalf of the president on the evening of september 11, 2012, to coordinate support to protect americans in libya and access to libyan territory." that angered graham. >> the president of the united states did not make any phone calls to any government official. and libya, the entire period of the attack. he called government officials on september 12, after everybody was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for pushing for this. frankly, the more answers we have gotten i think we have shown here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continu

in the broader region. i think secretary clinton and panetta seemed to be overruled by the white house. >> heather: it boggles the mind, the threat streams in libya, they were equaled elsewhere with equally significant and threatening intelligence, general dempsey's words. if we know that, then why this report from the deputy general that looked at 27 overseas diplomatic posts found numerous security standards violations for overseas buildings. on top of that the state department not keeping track of all the rules violated. why is that happening? >> they inspector general tells us the what and not the why. the sense i get there really is a ideological or political overtone we are unwinding wars to allocate resources to other purposes. it's not taking seriously what any reasonable person's mind would suggest. a broadening they the threat. the scope of al-qaeda and affiliated reach is expanding. there has been a lack of willingness among top leadership especially in the white house to take that head on. >> heather: you mentioned we have heard from clinton, panetta petraeus, dempsey, bren

the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton, and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria. >> we did. >> you did support that? >> we did. >> reporter: that's the first time that i've heard that the defense department and military officials say that they had recommended arming syrian rebels. you'll remember over the weekend that "the new york times" reported that last summer petraeus and clinton approached the white house for permission to arm the rebels. "the new york times" says that the white house rejected that request. however, there have been some implications from questions from senators on the hill as to whether in fact what was going on in benghazi was that there was some sort of operation to repackage arms, send them through turkey to syrian rebels. this is what was the basis of the question by senator rand paul to hillary clinton during the benghazi hearings last week. here is what they said. >> now my question is, is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow tr
. all american personnel were told at the embassy are safe but the attack marred hillary clinton's last day on the job. she will be saying her farewell exiting the building here. john kerry will take the oath of office in a private ceremony. spokesperson was asked about the transition. >> i think that he is expected to be sworn in on the friday -- it's a transition. >> reporter: secretary kerry raised eyes saying that he was first choice of secretary of state and was offered the job before susan rice. >>> thanks so much for the update. we will be following clinton's farewell and bring it live. more on the attack. terrorists targeting our embassies and diplomatic facilities goes way back. in 1993 a homicide car bomber destroyed the embassy in lebanon killing 63 people. jihad claimed responsibility for that. in 1998 a truck bombs were detonated near two u.s. embassies in kenya and tanzania, 224 people were killed there, about 4500 injured and more heavily armed militants attacked in in benghazi. four marines were killed including ambassador christopher stevens. we're following this story
not hear from president obama or from secretary of state hillary clinton on the night of this attack. what does that tell us about the administration's handling of this crisis? our panel debates. . >> my question to you is during that eight-hour period, did the president show any curiosity about how is this going? what kind of assets do you have helping these people? did he ever make that phone call? >> look, there is no question in my mind the president of the united states was concerned about american lives. anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'. live the regular life. avoid bad.fats. don't go over 2000... 1200 calories a day. carbs are bad. carbs are good. the story keeps changing. so i'm not listening... to anyone but myself. i know better nutrition when i see it: great grains. great grains cereal starts whole and stays whole. see the seam? more processed flakes look nothing like naturalrains. yo

the night of september 11th and when secretary clinton said she had a clear eyed view of the threats we faced in libya, the secretary of defense and chairman of the joint chiefs said they knew that night it was a terrorist attack and knew of the reporting coming out of libya from ambassador stevens says we cannot defend the consulate. she was not clear eyed. she was blind and deaf and the president of the united states never picked up the phone to call anybody in libya to help these four people under attack. the first ambassador killed in 30 years. they withheld information. i think they manipulated the evidence after the attack to create a political narrative rather than sharing with the public the truth about an al-qaeda attack that was preplanned and precoordinated. we will get to the bottom of this. >> chris: let me ask you one more question about the sequester before we let you go, senator. you know if we go into the sequester the president is going to hammer republicans. the white house has already put out a list of the terrible things that are going to happen if a sequester kicks
pollster for president bill clinton. pat, what did you think? >> he was better than hagel in the hearing. >>gregg: that is not saying much. >> he got caught up in the drone stuff and making incredible statements. what came out because the same day he testified we had outgoing secretary of defense panetta, went to testify on benghazi and told us what we learned. two weeks ago, we talked last week about the difference between what panetta and clinton said about iran versus hagel, and two weeks ago when they went on "60 minutes" we called it the biggest pay off in history. in that show, i remember suggesting one of the reasons that came out of hillary clinton's testimony was interesting to pursue, what was the president doing? we now know the president wasn't engaged. they had a 5:15 minute meeting that was preplanned and he did not talk to secretary of defense, clinton, and according to panetta, talked to no one. what we have a foreign policy that is coming apart. >>gregg: you were in the carter administration. all hands on deck the. >> the president himself, for ten, 15, 20 hours a day, i
famously denied. i never deny or contradict and i sometimes forget. think hillary clinton and leon paneta and susan rice and john brennan, all part of the parade of prevaricators in the hearings and media interviews and denying and forgetting what happened in the u.s. mission and a c.i.a. safe house in bengazi in september 11th 2012, protecting the boss is critical despite the fact he won reelection with a campaign unsullied by the hint that his team misguided the attack. we found out the president went missing that night as four americans fought for their lives and lost. this latest startling tidbit that obama was out of the touch with with testimony from leon paneta and in a letter senate to the senate runs by the white house. they demanded answers to key questioning, questions. did anyone get in touch with the libya government to get help. white house said no, not that night but the following. september 12th after the u.s. ambassador and three other mirns met their deathings. it turns out former secretary of state clinton and mr. obama spoke to each other during the attack but neither
. it was sent to secretary clinton's office one month before the attack. mrs. clinton testified in january that she never saw it. >> were aware of this cable, this august 16th cable? >> congressman, that cable did not come to my attention. i have made it very clear that the security cables did not come to my attention or above the assistant secretary level where the arb placed responsibility, where as i think ambassador pickering said the rubber hit the road. >> reporter: one ever the revelations of the panetta dempsey testimony is that this state department cable warning the consulate could not sustain a coordinated assault was considered so important that they were read in on it. >> when secretary clinton testified a few weeks ago that she had a clear-eyed assessment of the threat we faced in libya is that really a credible statement if she didn't know about the ambassador's cable on august the 15th saying we can't defend this place? >> i don't know that she didn't know about the cable. >> she said she didn't. are you stunned that she didn't? >> i would call myself surprised that she did
in 36 hours and hillary clinton said his days are numbered. he has an ability to hold on and iran is supporting him . cemeteried by russia. they are supporting him and he has a long way to go. >> the u.s. has not intervened in syria as why did in libya. what is the difference here? >> you have the russians protecting syria in the united nations .... and second of all, you are learning now after the third or fourth time. the devil we know and what israel is looking at is it better thant devil we don't know. syrian rebels have ties to al qaeda. you think about what libya had in terms of womans. that is tonka toyce in tef of the syria with the defense . get to iranians in termless of tankings and armored personnel carriers. the stakings are much higher and united states and staud saud backing off and you know, we may not want to stee how it terms out and let them fight amongst themselves before the rebels are going to win. >> you covered the hot spots. you are right there on the front line. you ever get scared doing this stuff? >> being scared is what keeping you alive and you hope y
it was a new york times story that revealed last week that both secretary clinton and general petraeus then head of the cia, had also advocated sending arms to the rebels in the resistance in syria so now we have a situation where the entire national security team, secretary of defense, secretary of state, head of cia, chairman of joint chiefs of staff who all advocated sending weapons to these rebels so they could defend themselves, keeping in mind the russians are supplying assad including the revolutionary iranian guard on the ground. so what happened? obviously, the buck stopped with the president of the united states overruling the recommendation of the national security team that he appointed. really remarkable. >> greta: and i have a sorted related topic. everybody knows that you say torture doesn't work and the now the report about drones coming out of the justice department that americans thought to be terrorists on foreign soil can be essentially disintegrated by drones. your thought about this? >> my thought is two thoughts. one, because of this administration's policy, if y
. >> with respect to keystone, secretary clinton put in place a very open and transparent process which i am committed to seeing through. i can guarantee you that it will be fair and transparent, accountable. and we hope that we will be able to be in a position to make an announcement in the near term. >>gretchen: here to weigh in, michigan's republican representative fred upton, who by the way, wants us to call him fred. i'm going to do what you want. all right, fred, what do you think of john kerry? is he going to flip-flop on this and now be in favor of the keystone pipeline? >> it's been four and a half years they have been studying this. we know the safest way to transport this oil is by pipeline. canada is going to increase production to four million barrels per day before the end of the decade. they are going to send it either to china or build a pipeline east to the atlantic and put it on a boat to send it to new orleans. isn't it better to put it on a pipeline that is going to be more efficient and getting it to the right place? >>brian: it is as frustrating following governor cuomo
.s. state department said he's gone in 36 hours and hillary clinton says his days are numbered, my day is numbered, too, how high the number is. he's supported by iran and they're sending him weapons and he's supported by russia and they're leaving him support at the united nations. he has a long way to go. >> the u.s. has not intervened in syria as we did in libya. as we did, know not militarily, but in egypt with the president of the united states coming and saying mubarak needs to go. >> what's the difference here? >> two things, you have the russian now protecting syria and the united nations and can't get the u.n. vote they tried to get. second you're learning after the third or fourth time. that the devil we know in terms of what the united states is looking at and israel is looking at is better than the devil we don't know. and the intelligence says that the syrian rebels often times have ties to al-qaeda and when you think about what libya had when the libyan revolution had. that's tonka toys with the systems ripped from hezbollah, back to the iranians, in terms of tanks, armor
clinton. >> you have to ask questions to get answers. if you make statements in a congressional hearing you'll get statements filibustering back at you. lindsey graham said that the hagel nomination for secretary of defense would not make it on to the floor unless the armed services committee got testimony from leon panetta about benghazi. that looks to be in train and i think they will insist that that testimony take place before the committee itself votes on the hagel nomination. bill: just one more question here, very broadly speaking. we were just talking about the middle east. you could move south on that map and talk about the northern continent of africa. >> right. bill: what are we doing as a country to engage in either of these areas to make sure the problems of today do not get worse? >> we have no strategy. that's why i've been so concerned that the whole sweep from the atlanta coast of west africa, through the middle east, all the way over to pakistan is deteriorating from the proceed pebgt tiff the united states and its close allies. israel, arab countries in the region. th

. you know, when secretary clinton said she had a clear-eyed assessment of the threats in libya, that proved after this hearing not to be true. the department of defense knew about the cable coming from our living ambassador saying he couldn't defend the consulate on august 15th. they knew about the deteriorating security situation, but the secretary of state didn't know anything about this. so she was blind, the president was disengaged, and the department of defense never launched one airplane to help these folks for seven and a half hours. this is complete system failure, and i'm going to get to the bottom of it. >> let me put it this way, it's been done many, many times, in fact, 89 timings in recent history. 71 of those times where it was not filibustered necessarily, but it called for a 60-vote margin. i want a 60-vote margin, john, and you don't have to filibuster to get that. jon: or very tough talk from powerful relin senators -- republican senators threatening to hold up confirmations. at issue, the deadly terror attack on our consulate in benghazi, libya, and what sen
and bill clinton 42 were getting along while president bush was still in office. you remember how nixon helped out everyone, from clinton to ford. this would be a great opportunity for president obama at some point, maybe even on tuesday, to say, a lot of the policies i was critical of as a senator, now that i'm in that seat, i can support and my respect goes out to george bush that. would go a long way to getting something done in washington. am i dreaming? >> yeah. this guy has never actually taken the olive branch and used it the way it should be. he wields it like a club and i don't think we'll have that moment. you're right, brian. this would be a time to say, you know what? i inherited these policies from bush and i'm actually glad. that's not going to happen. >> steve: he's adopted so many of george w. bush's policies, ironically, things he ran against and now he supports them. listen, let's talk a little bit about gun control. there was a rally recently and a very famous comedian was there and chris rock said this. >> president of the united states is, you know, our boss. he's a
to president clinton. and marc thiessen, a former speech writer for george w. bush. >> megyn: so your take on those two varying messages, marc? >> it's very simple. the president proposed these cuts and signed them into law and came up with them and did it by the way for political reasons not economic reasons. and to create something that congress would avoid. he did it because he didn't want another debt limit strike, and now all of a sudden the fiscal armageddon is doing. if the cuts are so bad. what is the president doing about it, has he proposed any cuts the way that the republicans did. make them more targeted, met with john boehner? no, he's going on and helping campaign events with first responders and talking to local tv anchors who won't ask tough questions like wasn't this your idea, mr. president? so, he is campaigning, rather nan leading and he should be governing, not going out there trying to blame the republicans for his own creation. >> megyn: you know, simon, to hear the president tell it you would think he has nothing to do with the sequester. >> i don't think that's tru
in the ouster of assad. >> brian: the "washington post" lead editorial today says hillary clinton and david petraeus, running the c.i.a. identified the group that they believe would have been the preferrable group to take over through all the rebels, they weeded through and had a plan. and the president nixed it. the word is too political. they wanted to make it seem we're not on a war footing with the election a month away. >> gretchen: maybe the election playing a huge role. let's look at the fox news polls right now. recently conducted, how many people feel our country compared to five years ago? nearly half of those polled say america is weaker and less powerful today. that's 48%. 24% believe that the country is stronger and more powerful. 27% say nothing changed. >> steve: that's kind of gloomy. you know, the president told john boehner during the negotiations, washington doesn't have a spending problem. health care cost too much. so we asked you. president obama says government doesn't have a spending problem. do you think it does? 83% of you say yes. the government does have a spendi
